A Co Down fashion company is hoping to win over even more fans as it recruits 10 new staff and relaunches its website.

Family-run business Pia Rossini, which is based in Bangor, started out as a wholesaler and was founded by husband and wife Philip and Debbie Shaw.

Now it's extended into selling through top fashion website ASOS, as well as shopping channel QBC.

It also stocks its accessories in luxury hotels such as the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Marketing manager Blayne Shaw told the Belfast Telegraph it now wishes to sell directly to the consumer, and is launching a new website as well as taking on 10 new staff.

The company's recruitment drive has been bolstered by Invest NI assistance.
